A modern farmhouse with pops of colour and cool patterns

A modern farmhouse with pops of colour and cool patterns

Hello Hello!
I am here with another cool family interior. Times three. Three kids rooms, one as fun as the other plus one fantastic ‘sleepover’ fortress to host little guests.

This modern farmhouse is situated in upstate New York and full of unexpected pops of colour and patterns. And it is really great to see how each kids room has its own personality and colour scheme. Lets open the door to some punchy colours, bold, funky wallpapers as well as traditional elements.

A very charming mishmash of styles:

I assume that we are looking at a family with 2 boys and one girl.  The boys’ rooms are very geographic and the little girl is living a pink dream with one striking wallpaper. (from Pierre Frey called Otomi)

And because of the three little ones, everything in the home has a very practical component too. Each surface was protected with hard-to-damage natural materials or coated in exterior-grade fabrics to avoid stress about spills or messes.  So clever and really something to keep in mind for future projects!

And they seem to have many sleepovers too…

At least this is how I see this room. To host little friends. Because I am counting 6 beds in here. And since each child has a bed in their own room this must be the sleepover haven. So cool! Each guest gets a little built-in shelf too to put down their important belongings.

And those bathrooms. That shower (which seems to be the size of our family bathroom here) is so fun. With a ‘real’ door and a bench inside. I am sold.

Talk about an entrance…

What do you think about this place? Nice place to spend weekends and holidays isn’t?

26 fun things for your July!

26 fun things for your July!

Are you watching the Women Football World Cup? We do and I am so happy and proud that my kids follow it with the same enthusiasm as they watched last years Men’s World Cup. And I have to say that I so impressed on how these teams have progressed…
But of course, women football is light years away from the men and when you read this article about their earnings and sacrifices. It makes you cringe. A lot!

On the other hand, I hope that you all manage to stay cool! And hydrated…

I gathered, picked, selected and curated (ah, one of those overused words from 2018) my favourites for a very happy month of July for you! Enjoy:

8 cutest one-piece swimsuits for mums

8 cutest one-piece swimsuits for mums

I am the first to admit that having children did not get unnoticed by my body. More the opposite. And I know that I am not alone!

Some of us have very generous genes and yet most of us deal with some kind of a little bump here or there. And we are fine with that because it is a part of us and shows that a little person was inside of us. (typing this makes the whole thing even more interesting, because we should probably be very proud of those little bumps or however you like to call them)

But, of course, there are moments we would like to hide them a little. At the beach or pool for example…

Great news – we are in 2019 and one-piece swimsuits are totally back, come in the cutest and trendiest styles and are perfect for our mum bodies!

Because in the end all that counts is: You want and need to feel good. You want a suit that tucks in your tummy, that does not cut into your thighs and that makes you feel fantastic. Because we are women who happen to be mothers and also have bodies!

Here are 8 one-piece swimsuits that are a great start to feeling amazing and that I think are just super cute:

8 cutest one-piece swimsuits for mums

Clockwise from top left:

1. Seersucker material with embossed texture and cute buttons on the straps. Very chic one-piece.

2. Gingham panels for a cool look. Not on the cheap side but definitely a stunning piece.

3. There is a review about this fab suit* that says: The one piece of my dreams! I’ve been searching for something that fits my mama body without screaming I’M A MOM. This suit is IT. Perfectly retro while still feeling fresh, not too high cut and supremely flattering. The suit is thick and holds everything in just right while not cutting into my thighs. Love the horizontal striped band around the waist. And the bow on the shoulder up-levels it in the best way. I guess there is nothing to add…

4. Boom! That colour made me fall in love with that suit* right away. The shape is super cute and it is body-sculpting too. I am sure you will get lots of compliments in this one…

Clockwise from top left:

1. Honeycomb texture (love! feels so luxurious) and lovely pom pom detail. Very flattering one-piece* and in a classic navy colour.

2. Cross back suit in a very flattering shape and cute print.

3. So gorgeous and those crochet/ embroidery details are the D E A L! I love the blue colour* but the magenta* is equally fantastic. (on sale)

4. It starts with simple yet very cute navy suit* and ends in a ‘wooooow’ with these cool and vibrant straps in the back.

 

Have a great summer, you will look splendid wherever you decide to jump into the water!

Sunshine accessories for the kids room

Sunshine accessories for the kids room

I was asking Romy to give me a colour. Just any colour that comes in her mind right away. And she said yellow. Why did I ask her? Because I wanted a colour theme for a little kids room accessories round up.

The great thing is that I love yellow, that yellow is perfect for the summer season and it totally adds a ray of sunshine to the room. Rain or shine!

And, just coming back from the first trade show, it looks like it will be a big thing next summer in the collections… which means, you are ahead of the game here today…

I got this feelin’ inside my bones
It goes electric, wavy when I turn it on
All through my city, all through my home
We’re flyin’ up, no ceilin’, when we in our zone
I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet…

(Justin Timberlake – Can’t stop the feeling)

 

Let’s have a look at the fabulous kids room accessories I found in this gorgeous and uplifting colour:

1. Ceiling light* to display your favourite things. A classic that brings joy to every home.

2. Fun cheetah print*.

3. These paper lampshades* have been a hit some time ago, but I love them so much. Beautiful faded yellow for this one!

4. Coolest lion head* made from raphia. A stunner in every room!

5. Yellow rain drop cushion*.

6. I love a great storage basket. And even more when it comes as an apple*

7. Canopy* in sunflower yellow. Stunning in a simple room….

8. Eye catcher. Circus rug*!

9. Supersoft quilted blanket*.

10. Star cushion*!

11. Neon* lightening.

12. Gorgeous cotton blanket* in mustard yellow.

13. A classic by now. But in yellow the basket with wheels* is such a bright addition for the play room.

Enchanting family apartment in a lush neighbourhood

Enchanting family apartment

Interior Tuesday and we are visiting this beautiful family apartment in the heart of Stockholm. I was instantly drawn to the wonderful mix of modern, original features and vintage.

And it has a lush perspective too, because the apartment has a direct exit to an amazing courtyard!

Situated in the neighbourhood of Vasatan in Stockholm, this place is fantastic for families. Parks, shops, close to the center and full of life.

We can find the typical deep window sills (I miss them!), original windows, high ceilings, high floor sills and great wooden floors.

Let’s have a look around:

My favourite is the kitchen and I love that it is an open floor plan. Lots of light, and such a tasteful and very modern kitchen. The washed walls, colours of the cabinets, and that large dining table right by the window. Love it!

The whole place was renovated in 2015 with new electricity, a new floor plan, and the even raised the ceiling. Put great colours on all the walls, installed that stunning kitchen, and now it is on the market…

Can you see that the window sills are so deep, that you can actually use them as a desk?

And it is Stockholm…

If you are not planning to move there, you should absolutely go and visit. Especially during this time of the year… going through the Archipelago, strolling the streets, and enjoying the special Scandinavian light and air. It is special and beautiful!

Have a lovely day and if you would like to see more places from Stockholm how about this Vintage family haven or this charming place with lots of great ideas to take away.
